The 100th anniversary of the Lafayette Escadrille flyover from a different point of view.
As already explained, on Apr. 20, one B-52, four F-22 Raptor fighters (from their deployment base at RAF Lakenheath), three FAF Mirage 2000Ns and one FAF Rafale performed flyovers during the ceremony commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Lafayette Escadrille’s formation.
The aircraft flew over the memorial in Marnes-la-Coquette, in the western suburbs of Paris, France, that celebrates all 269 American pilots who flew with the French Air Force as part of the larger Lafayette Flying Corps before and during WWI.
Here are some more interesting photographs released by the French Air Force.
ahhhh paris – vive la france!
See those F-22s and that B-52? That is what winning looks like
1916 was not before WW1. It was only before America’s entry into that war.
Don’t you want to comment the F22 vs. Rafale in Emirates?? :) The F22 didn’t open his “ammunition bunker” (sorry Google translation) it seems…
Hahahaha! A french admirer (from Switzerland).
I guess that’s a provocation to our friends from the other side of the Atlantic ocean.
PS: could be a good idea to reopen the F22 factory… ’cause you are going to have some troubles with your “amazing” F35 :( Or how to lose air superiority!
